“Floating” by Jimmy Marble


Jimmy Marble is a director, photographer, designer, and muralist living in Los Angeles. His work, a steady diet of offbeat chic, operates in a particularly tasty color palate. This collection, “Floating,” has our heart strings singing late summer melodies and our imaginations taking a stroll around the block. Alex Noiret is all dolled up and striking the perfect notes, the dialogue between her body and floating flowers has  got me interested in the space we keep and how we occupy it, our elbows and wrists and the angles they make. There is something so settling about the simple beauty found here. It gets me feeling pretty, it gets me feeling like a lady, it get me wanting more from Jimmy Marble as soon as possible. His prints are for sale on Big Cartel and his portfolio is filled with rich images, long limbs, and perfectly executed intentions.

 I Will Wade Out

E.E. Cummings

I will wade out
till my thighs are steeped in burning flowers
I will take the sun in my mouth
and leap into the ripe air
with closed eyes
to dash against darkness
in the sleeping curves of my body
Shall enter fingers of smooth mastery
with chasteness of sea-girls
Will i complete the mystery
of my flesh
I will rise
After a thousand years
And set my teeth in the silver of the moon

A Midweek Meditation On Zadie Smith’s Literary Brilliance, Michelle Obama’s Grace and Common’s Never-ending Creativity

This week, I’m leaning into love. Love for literature and one of its most brilliant minds. Love for our First Lady who feels like family instead of political royalty. Love for Common, a man whose trademark creative impulse shines on an unofficial remix of “Cranes in the Sky.”
